From Dessert by Deb

Chocolate is a MUST in a dessert tea collection! Chocolate is one of the most versatile and beloved (not to mention decadent) things in the world of dessert. Here, chocolate is paired with vanilla and berries for a creamy, fruity black tea blend. Try it with a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer for a truly scrumptious treat!

Note: this blend contains hibiscus so non-dairy milk is recommended versus regular milk as the acid can cause it to curdle. Almond, soy, and coconut milk are good alternatives.

Certified organic ingredients: Black Tea, Vanilla, Giddy YoYo Cacao Nibs, Giddy YoYo Dark Chocolate. Elderberries, Currants, Raisins, Hibiscus

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 212F for 4-6 mins

I was hoping to have more success with this blend than Sil or VariaTEA had but this wasn’t really the case. I don’t remember either of them mentioning this, but the dry leaf smell of this tea is really off to me – it’s chocolate-y, sure, but also it kind of smells like feet!?

Thankfully it doesn’t really taste like feet (well, maybe just a TINY bit). It also doesn’t taste that good either though – kind of not properly chocolate-y and not properly berry either, and definitely not creamy. I just think that chocolate and hibiscus really aren’t meant to go together and forcing them to coexist just makes for lesser versions of both flavours.

Sample from variaTEA. While I appreciate the share this one is not for me. I’d expect to get a creamy, chocolate berry tea…and instead this was an off putting weird berry thing. I don’t Mind hibby , but Something about how this one blends together just doesn’t work. Tons of chocolate chunks but no chocolate in the tea. Just sour berry tang. Blech.

This seemed to be a miss for me, you and Roswell Strange (I think)

This is a lot more “berry” than chocolate or cream, which is surprising since there are a lot of dark chocolate chunks in this blend. This is mostly hibiscus and a dark berry flavor. It’s fine but not what I was hoping for so I’m a little let down.

Sil

is it bad that i’m happy these don’t seem worth it? haha

So I got excited about Mint Chip what with it being the first blend I tried and all. Then we all started talking about orders so I wanted to be as honest as possible and curb my new tea excitement which usually leads me to believe a tea is better than it is. Some have been very good and others were not and others were just ok so I revisited Mint Chip as an iced latte again today and that one is still very good. So she has some good options but not everything is a MUST have, which means savings.

Sil

Good :)
